Analyzes and simulates rate equations

MODEL is a C++ library to analyse and simulate various kinds of rate equations which describe Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs). It can also be used to simulate other physical systems. The main functions of the various classes of the library include:

  • Deterministic integration of any system of well-behaved differential equations.
  • Stochastic integration of these systems, with the possibility of specifying the correlations present in the noise
  • Nonlinear rootfinder, to find stationary solutions
  • Eigenvalue determination, for stability analysis
  • Easy time modulation of input parameters
  • Diverse data collecting classes for data analysis
  • Small signal analysis (first order)
